While single DES encrypts a PIN number once upon entering, Triple DES
encrypts it, decrypts it and then encrypts it again for added security -- all with the goal of protecting consumer credit card data from a hacker or breach of security.
The high-end Atalla A10100 NSP provides 540 Triple DES
PIN translates per second, while the mid-range Atalla A9100 NSP offers 120 Triple DES
PIN translates per second and the entry-level Atalla A8100 NSP provides 20 Triple DES
PIN translates per second.
